defense cuts that are coming up this january. these are things he has mentioned before, so this speech seemed to be an opportunity to make that argument a little more forcefully and and a place like virginia where it is a major battleground this year. the obama campaign is responding with a tv ad of their own in virginia, focusing on governor romney's foreign trip abroad, saying this was a reckless tripped and using a lot of footage from that. less than a month away from election day, we have a turn back toward foreign policy. it is the mirror image of what happened in 2008 when foreign policy had the election but once the financial collapse happened, suddenly everything turned to the economic issues and now you're seeing the other way around. host: thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >> this is where mr. romney will give his speech this morning. this is the virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. you are looking at the hall of valor. now romney is set to give his foreign policy speech at of the debate on foreign policy october 26 in florida. we will have live coverage
. also renowned criminal defense attorney, mark geragos. you say jerry sandusky is opening the wound for the victims by releasing this statement. >> yes, anderson, i believe he is. what's happening is that sandusky is taking every opportunity to continue to torment these victims. he's now accusing them, in fact, made a direct reference to victim one by saying he started everything. there is no conspiracy here. there is no making these accusations for any reason other than to put mr. sandusky behind bars for the rest his life because of th heinous acts that he perpetrated on these victims. >> mark, what about this? he is alleging this basically huge conspiracy against him by just about everybody, putting out a statement like this the night before the sentencing hearing, is that something you would ever advise a client to do? >> no. the last thing you are going to want to do is advise a client i want you to go in there, you're better off just saying nothing. however, as a practical matter, he's going to get a life sentence, whether it's a number of years, whether it's consecutive, what
of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
of bad stuff. just this week the libya situation put the president on the defensive. the economy speaks for itself. so the only place the voters can really see the obama-biden ticket under pressure is in the debates. on the other side we're hoping governor romney will sit for an interview with us. we're negotiating that right now. we'll have an update for you on monday. generally speaking, mr. romney has been more accessible than president obama, but it is true the romney campaign is playing it very safe. at the debate tonight, vice president biden is the experienced hand. he's 27 years older than paul ryan and biden knows how to attack. the congressman is an unknown quantity when it comes to dealing with this kind of pressure. but talking points expects mr. ryan to be armed with panels that might slow down mr. biden who will most likely go after ryan hard. be interesting to see hot congressman handles that. that's a memo. top of the story, four years ago it was sarah palin debating joe biden. >> all you got to do is go down union street and go to katy's restaurant or walk into home dep
said. >> they called it the heckler's defense, that is what biden was doing. biden was heckling ryan. >> you can't interrupt more pinkerton. now you are smiling at him. >> and sponsored by anheuser-busch. >> and let's be clear about this raditz was playing with the biden team. she was letting biden interrupt ryan and she was interrupting herself. listen, martha if you are going to play on biden's team you can't be the moderator. you can't be two on one. >> jon: we'll focus her on the next block. but joe biden with 36 years in the senate was built up as the experienced debater. that was the mean going into this into the press. what about ryan? how was he cast? >> i think each side is happy with the outcome because each side felt their guy did pretty well. i think ryan demonstrated an amazing ability to field a huge number of varying questions. he is not a foreign policy expert yet he raised enormously important questions about the obama foreign policy. he surprised a lot of people. so apart from the concentration on biden's smirk or grin, as they said, biden tooth in his choice but i
to the wood shed on wanting to spend more on defense budget, on wanting to perhaps be more active in syria. he you the ut terd the same lin heard. the notion of dumping more money into defense and also at least giving a veiled threat of more action in syria is enough to scare a lot of people who are war weary and sick of it. >> agree. i think rand paul reflects that sentiment inside and outside of the party. there are more traditional republicans going back 30, 40 years of looking at these things more objectively, looking at the costs and all of that. that's going to be an ongoing battle. i think tonight to your point, gene, that what the congressman has to do is not jump on this whole issue in a way that comes off partisan keeping in mind your point that a life -- many lives were lost, four lives were lost, and that to be sober in challenging the administration's position. >> that particularly -- >> >> is smarter politics. >> particularly important for him. >> and it's even important because the man at the top of the ticket has criticized the foreign policy of the obama administration but thr
, a total sham. and moreover, governor romney also proposes a $2 trillion defense increase. now, if you want to do that, you think there's a case for it, and some of the military people are wrong. they need it. then you at least ought to say how you're going to pay for it. >> howard? >> hey, joe? >> the fascinating thing about all this is the positioning. now, i actually disagree with joe on raising the entitlement age. i don't have a problem with raising the age on social security because i agree with you actuarily. raising the age on medicare is really a bad idea. it's the one thing that would make me not support simpson-bowles if i were in the congress because medicare is a health insurance program. it isn't about an entitlement. it's about figuring out how to get everybody health insurance. the one program we have that covers everybody that's universal is medicare. why would you want to raise the age on medicare? but i agree with you on social security and the other entitlements. we cannot continue to have this kind of level of entitlement spending if we're going to balance the budget. b
when our words are not backed by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. it is time to change course in the middle east. one final thing, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney might be moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, there might be some of that on foreign policy when we hear this speech later on this morning. >> jim acosta, we'll check back with you. >>> okay. let's take another peek at the obama campaign's preemptive strike. remember, it's called a prebuttal because it's challenging a speech romney will not give for a couple more hours. listen. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times"
bennett said she expected defense lawyers to scrutinize her past but believes they went too far, requesting her search engine records to try to prove she had not been raped. now she's speaking out and telling her story to keep other victims from suffering the same. if you've been beaten, sexually assaulted and strangled, should it matter to the court what you've been googling? that's what the defense was demanding from victim jennifer bennett. they subpoenaed her journal, computer, even her search engine records. >> i drew my line in the sand and this is where i'm going to stick up for myself. i was not the criminal. so investigating me and my life, it just didn't seem right. it didn't seem just. >> reporter: her ordeal began in beautiful bend, oregon on a first date with a charming doctor she had met on match.com. thomas bray, a former anesthesiologist and teacher at a local community college. the date was going well so they went for a night cap at his home where bennett said he attacked her. the assault lasted five hours. >> she had been strangled. she had been beaten about th
is going to widen. >> obama's been on defense the last week. >> woo vepolling data now... that shows that romney is ahead, wherever he is ahead. i think he has been ahead for months or weeks. i don't think it happened overnight. but they are all saying romney is surging. >> he was on the stage with the president of the united states. he looked like he was in command. he was in charge of the entire discussion. i think that's the reason the polls are tightening right now. >> i told you 3 months ago, 2 months ago and 1 month ago, if the election were held on that day, it would be a landslide romney. >> the facts are the facts. we just saw them come to light in the last debate. with no outside b.s., no bias, media, no interruptions and negative political ads every five seconds. and most importantly, no damn teleprompters. >> the debate is not just shifting the polls. the debate is creating momentum. >> this business of just going out and calling a candidate for the president of the united states, a liar, just say liar, liar, this is a new low. this is a really -- really a new low. >> thi
on the floor of congress and he made a very spirited defense of the obama record at the democratic convention. expect the same thing to happen here tonight. >> do you think there will be as many viewers for this vice- presidential debate as there was four years ago? >> reporter: who knows? it's unlikely given the fact that sarah palin had so much more of a, dare we say it -- wow factor politically than does ryan? but there will be a lot of interest. i was just looking at a google board. google has this tracking system. and a lot of people are look at both candidates as they travel around. you can see spikes on google in terms of the interest in ryan and especially ryan but the interest in biden has been sort of flat. so maybe people know what they need to know about him. maybe ryan is more interesting because he is new to the national political scene. we'll see how it plays out at the debate. >> we will see. live in kentucky, thank you. >>> and you can catch live coverage of the evening debate starting at 6:00 tonight on cbs 5 and cbssf.com. >>> it is 6:11 now. why a popular breakfast cereal
enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense spending is arbitrarily and deeply qaeda. while i have a trade agenda to speak of and it is not one of partnership, but opacity. >> it garnered a headline in "usa today." romney's hope is not a strategy. susan glasser, how much of his speech was against president obama and what he stunned? and how much of slain at his own trajectory and agenda? >> mostly most was the challenger, this is a critique of the obama policy and that is a very common tax by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked hope is not a strategy. he's tried to emphasize his critique of obama as fighting from behind, which was sort of an unnamed administration official at the very end of a new yorker magazine piece last year and has become a sort of state of republican critiques of the president's foreign policy. that being said, there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. for example, romney has russia as an important geopolitical united states. much of the surprise of hi
-fly zone over syria sending arms of supplies to anti-government groups and bombing the air defense or sending troops into syria. so, we asked them about each one. let me give you a summary with a very quick comment. you can see that 60% support increasing diplomatic sanctions on syria. but what is interesting is 59% support a no-fly zone over syria as well. this is interesting because we can have a conversation about what that means, will the public thinks because you can see from the three categories below that there is only 22% support arming the syrian rebels. and i should say on that one there was a poll that was done also in june asking the same questions. by large, the results of the poll were pretty much the same with an exception that in between there was also a cnn poll conducted in august which showed a more divided american public on the issue of arming the rebels. and so, that could be changed from august. you can see that only 22% support arming the rebels, 21% support bombing the air defense sending the troops into syria? there seems to the contradiction of sorts in t
to blame the rome rom ticket for making this an issue. with you should note impose devastating defense cuts, when we equivocate on our values and show weakness, when we look weak our adversaries are more willing to test us and our allies are. >> with all due respect that is bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so. >> not a single thing he said is accurate. >> vice president knows sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. [laughter] >> i always say what i mean. bill: that just now a sample of what you're going to get for the next two hours here. so much of the focus today though is about what joe biden was doing, when he was not talking. his body language, the arguably the most argued about item from last night's debate. that is where he start. steve hayes, senior writer "weekly standard.". fox news contributor. good morning there in danville, kentucky. >> good morning, bill. bill: start with the incumbent. how did joe biden do. >> the fact that so many people talking about demeanor, but the fact that he continually interrupted paul ryan but many times martha radditz, corr
are proposing $5 trillion in tax cuts. you're proposing to increase defense spending by $2 trillion. >> neither of these numbers are accurate. >> biden himself acknowledges he will be ready to respond if ryan disputes his record. >> i just want to make sure that when i say these things, no, no, no, i don't have the position or that's not the governor's position. >> to fully prepare, biden had a strict daily ritual. afternoons where biden rehearsed answering moderator questions. dinner time at home with his wife and after dinner, biden returned to the hotel for the 90 minute mock debates took place. biden's team wants to make sure you don't see any of those gaffes he's so notorious for. >> there's nothing about joe biden that i think people in this state don't like about him and love about him. >> but it can be a hard line between speaking from the heart and moments like this one last week on the middle class. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> or in august, speaking to an audience that included many african-americans. >> he's goi
! >>neil: it is a balance of sacred cows from the g.o.p. defending defense spending to democrats trying to save big bird, we have seen it at both debates and we are seeing it in races across the country. >> under president obama there has been $500 billion taken out of the military and sequestration going into affect that is another $500 billion which are draconian cuts that hurt our ability to protect the national security and the last few weeks have shown this is a very dangerous world. >>neil: that was ted cruz the republican senate candidate in texas with me yesterday in kentucky. now, fair and balanced, the democratic challenger. where do you, sir, see this race ultimately decided, not your own, in general, if you had to distinguish between parties right now. how do you look at it? >>guest: well, between myself and mr. cruz it is a very different background. i have legislative experience, i have passed major pieces of legislation in this state and i am the more -- he wants to get rid of the i.r.s., i will support social security and medicare and medicaid and that the difference. he
a weak case. >> he does. he is on the defensive, unlike 2008. but he knows that. he has gone in there, he has to have an answer when governor romney gives us the figures that he has givenu us before. but to come back strong. he didn't do it. he seemed unprepared. in people say he seemed like he's bored. he's weary with the job. he's tired. he was sullen. he didn't feel like he wanted to be there. he doesn't like the debate. all of these thing, i think, played into it. but i think the president has to realize that this is the worst debate performance, just about i have ever seen. >> greta: he's very fortunate in that today, sort of change the narrative, to the jobs numbers. that in fact twent down to 7.8%. people are talking about that. that has moved the discussion a little off his debate performance and more on the discussion of the jobs. >> things do move o. but 7.8% is exact rate barack obama inherited. right? he says, i inherited the worst situation since the great depression. every month since he has been in office, unemployment has been higher than the worst situation since the grea
. >> the president gave his own defense of that shifting explanation in an abc interview. >> as information came in, information was put out. the information may not have always been right the first time. these are people i know, and if there's something to be fixed, it will get fixed. >> questions remain, taking the administration at its word that it didn't intentionally mislead on the story, the only other explanation seems to be a massive intelligence failure. by the way, in ohio wednesday, romney once again told the story of meeting one of the victims of the benghazi attack. >> i met some wonderful people. one was a former navy s.e.a.l., and glen doherty, and he -- we chatted for a while. >> that's the last time we're going to hear that story. the campaign says it is respecting the wishes of doherty's family. doherty's mother said this to our nbc affiliate whch, "i don't trust romney. he shouldn't make my son's death part of his political agenda. it's wrong to use these brave young men who wanted freedom for all to degrade obama." finally, we've got a new round of battleground state numbers fro
of boston's top criminal defense lawyers. shep? >> shep: what about the accusations that link that company to a patient's death? >> in 2004, the widow of an 83-year-old man, who died a year after receiving an injection, sued this company. she alleged that he had contracted a more common form of meningitis from that shot. but the woman and the company reached a confidential settlement in 2007 before the case ever went to trial. shep? >> shep: jonathan in our atlanta news room, thanks. >>> more than two years after that devastating bp oil spill in the gulf of mexico, more oil is surfacing, contaminating the water meter disaster site. coast guard officials report a slick 50 miles off the coast of louisiana matches exactly the crude oil that poured out of bp's well in 2010 after the deep water horizon rig exploded. that disaster sent more than 200 million gallons of oil into the water. the coast guard reports the newly discovered oil sheen will not hit land and it's too small to try to recover. >>> this news comes as we've gotten word that bp is close to what may be a multi-billion-dollar sett
like i have to rush to the defense of people who look boyish. >> but you're not running for vice president. >> thank god. >> but if you were, that would be part of the case you had to make that you were ready. this is not the most important issue tonight, but it has been bugging me as give been doing all this prep is when before mitt romney picked paul ryan he was making the case on the campaign trail that nobody should be allowed to run for president of the united states. amend the u.s. constitution so you couldn't run unless you had significant private sector experience, except for paul ryan who he picked to be his vice presidential nominee. do you think that distance between ryan and romney, ed, is the most important thing? most important opening tonight for joe biden? >> well, in your opening you talked about how they're very much the same. washingtonites. but the way they got there is a lot different. ryan's path was one of privilege. joe biden's was one of true middle class. i think tonight's debate is as much about how liberals are going to feel when it's over with, as par
defense of ryan's performance so they're grabbing for libya. >> i want to go back to that because obstruction is not discussed enough on the national stage and paul ryan kept with this lie of we're trying to be bipartisan and biden repeatedly pointed out areas of obstruction. he pointed out congress' 7% approval rating, which is the point of obstruction, to ruin congress' rating so americans will throw out the party in power. he talked about the embassy security money being removed, he talked about if they just get out of the way. even the stimulus letter moment, which i loved. ryan is trying to attack the stimulus, and he said, well, you asked gor stimulus money twice. you wrote me two letters which proves republicans know that these policies are valuable and important and helpful to americans and still they oppose them. >> indeed. joy, the republican divorce from reality based thinking was evident inside the debate hall but you saw it outsides a well. take a listen to this. >> who said communist down here? what do you mean by that? >> well all you have to do is study it out, jus
president to admit outloud that he he had no idea what was going on. ignorance is hardly a defense. the fact of the matter is there were over 230 security incidents there in libya. our consulate there in benghazi had been bombed twice. now, where else in the world are you aware of any consulate or embassy having been bombed twice? there were actually al qaeda flags flying above government buildings. when i went to libya last saturday. i was there most of the day, not a single person ever mentioned a video. this administration continues to have a lot of questions that go unanswered. in fact, compounded by the fact that the white house, the vice president, they continue -- they are just not being straight with the american people. they have a lot to answer for. >> congressman chaffets, of course, the statement released by chertoff and hayden is this. >> given what's been announced about the intelligence available before and after the september 11th attack. it is clear this the failure was not on the part of the intelligence community but on the part of the white house decision makers who shoul
to prepare their defense, to research all the victims' stories, to come up with evidence that might dispute those stories. it is a reed that they can hang on. they will certainly try to make the most of it on appeal, but i think the sheer power of these eight victims who testified, plus the evidence about the assaults to two other victims, is so overwhelming, it makes it a very steep hill for sandusky to climb and a long-shot at best. i think sandusky realized that, you could tell, he broke down, by the way, at the end of his statement, choked up. there were a number of times that both the victims, and even mcgettigan, the prosecutor, made much of the fact that during the trial sandusky would seem to smile and smirk at the testimony. and i have to say, even as during this hearing, when the victims began to talk, sandusky was impassive and seemed to have a half smile on his face, didn't react, even as these victims were talking about the damage that he had done to them. but when it came time for him to talk, and towards the end, as he rambled on, he seemed to break down, choke up and break d
romney is a little more of a patriot and will handle foreign affairs and defense much better and i and i will say something hardly anybody says on the air any more. i'm very much prolife and i will always take the prolife candidate. >> shannon: foreign policy. how do you think a president romney would be different, better than president obama? >> i think after a clear terrorist al-qaeda inspired attack on the u.s. consulate that killed a u.s. ambassador he would not blame a filmmaker in cerritos, california. he would blame kade an al-qaede terrorists. i think he would stand up for america. >> shannon: on the issue of prolife. something we do cover a lot at fox, social issues even though there are some republicans who say stay away from it. not a winner for us. >> not a winner for me either. >> shannon: you are always a winner. >> shannon: what do you think it means for voters because there are voters who the social issues are what drive them to the ballot box or keep them home. >> a lot of that is going on. some voters say you are antiwomen because you are not' louing women to have unlim
